As I said earlier, Canongate use to be a seperate Burgh from Edinburgh so the Canongate Tolbooth served as the municipal building, court and prison for the Burgh of Canongate. It had then become a historical landmark for the Old town of Edinburgh.
The People's Story is a Free attraction, located within the tolbooth. It showcase the lives of Edinburgh's ordinary citizen from the late 18th century until today.

3. The Fudge House
My favorite place in Edinburgh when a little bit of sugar is all I need. It's fun sampling all kinds of flavors... and don't forget to take your favorite fudge home!

Fun fact: the construction cost over £414 million (ten times over original budget!)
6. Mary Queen of Scot's Bath House
Having the most interesting location: half in the palace gardens and half on the pavement of Abbey Hill, this is the cutest and smallest stone house I've ever seen! And despite being so tiny, this is actually a double storey Bath House for Mary Queen of Scot's!
This is the official residence of the British monarch in Scotland. If you have sometime to spend, a guided tour is highly recommended.
8. Holyrood Abbey
